Pipeline Magazine Recognizes the Innovation of Global Capacity’s One Marketplace 

Global CapacityChicago, IL, USA, May 29, 2014 – Global Capacity, the leading network connectivity company, announces today that it is one of two finalists in the Most Innovative Service Provider category for Pipeline Magazine’s2014 Communications and Entertainment Technology (COMET) Innovation Awards.  This marks the second consecutive year that Global Capacity is recognized as one of the most ‘Innovative Service Providers’ for its One Marketplace platform.

Each year, Pipeline, the world’s leading communications and entertainment technology magazine, recognizes prominent industry innovators among ten distinct categories at the COMET Innovation Awards.  Pipeline distinguishes industry-leading technologies that drive advancement in network management, speed, security, capacity, coverage, reliability, and more.  Pipeline’s Innovation Awards are judged by an esteemed panel of key executives from top service providers and influential analysts from Pipeline’s Industry Advisory Board.

Global Capacity was selected for its One Marketplace, the world’s first online marketplace of networks.  One Marketplace delivers unprecedented transparency, efficiency and simplicity to a complex and highly fragmented network connectivity market by combining an aggregated, interconnected, physical network with a cloud application that automates the design, pricing, ordering, delivery and maintenance of access network services.  There is no other platform in the market today that provides real-time market rate comparison with network availability assessment, ordering and provisioning capabilities combined with physical interconnectivity – all governed by a single MSA to simplify the procurement and management of network connectivity services.

“One Marketplace is designed to improve efficiency, while optimizing the pricing, procurement and provisioning of network services, resulting in accelerated business, simplified global WAN connectivity and the best possible experience for our customers,” says Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity.  “Our recognition for service innovation by Pipeline’s esteemed panel of judges among leading carriers and service providers is a testament to One Marketplace’s tremendous acceptance as well as its positive impact on the market.”

Global Capacity’s One Marketplace is setting the standard for efficient access pricing and service operations.  One Marketplace addresses the challenge of buying competitive access network services by streamlining the off-net procurement process for buyers and the delivery process for available network connectivity.  Additionally, it equips customers with the right informational tools for strategically viewing, interpreting and capitalizing on big data analytics.

Coinciding with TM Forum Live, June 2-5, 2014, award winners will be announced at the 2014 Innovation Awards reception, held at the Le Negresco in Nice, France on June 2, 2014.
